Teaching

Before embarking on my graduate studies at UC Davis, I taught English Literature at the GCE ‘A’ H2 Level at National Junior College, Singapore, and was part of the teaching team of the first Integrated Programme in Singapore. At the National University of Singapore (2009 – 2010), I was a teaching assistant for film and cultural studies classes.

At UC Davis (2011 – 2015), I have been an associate instructor for ENL3: Introduction to English Literature. I have also been a TA for classes in Asian American Studies, American Studies and Design. Some of these classes include:

  • DES40B: Ideologies of Design
  • DES40A: Energy, Materials, and Design over Time
  • DES149: Principles of Information Design
  • AMS21: Objects and Everyday Life

I have also been a facilitator of a youth expedition project to Khon Kaen, Thailand (2004) with twenty student volunteers from National Junior College collaborating with Child Help Foundation (CHF), engaged in service learning focused on urban social issues.

For Semester 2, 2016-2017, I was an adjunct instructor of the module “Singapore as Model City?” at Tembusu College, National University of Singapore.
